For Job Candidates

Preferred Method To Be Contacted By A Candidate: Email Preferred Process For Following Up On Application: Email - I'm often waiting on feedback from our hiring managers. Once I hear from them, I can come back to the email and let our candidate know! Things That Impress You In A Candidate: Enthusiasm! Candidates that have researched the position and our company always stand out. It's refreshing to speak with people who are excited (and sound excited) about seeing if Extra Space is a great fit for them. Personally, I'm thrilled when people interview like normal human beings instead of robots trying to hit every buzzword in the book. Passionate. Driven. KPI's. Motivated. Things Candidates Must Include To Be Considered For Job: Resume. We appreciate it when people apply online since we'll have to get their information in our system anyways. Cover letters are nice, but only if written like a real person. No one understands what your skills are when you attempt the following phrase (or those like it): A motivated, passionate, conscientious, problem solving, hard working team player. Things That Will Disqualify A Candidate From Getting Considered: A sloppy resume filled with spelling errors or applying for EVERY job on our careers page (200+ jobs). We've seen a few people apply to everything from our Sr. Director roles to our hourly positions. Can Candidates Apply For Multiple Positions And Not Get Penalized?: Yes

Recruiter's Perspective

What do you like to do in your free time? Soccer, longboarding, hiking, mountain biking, anything adventurous and a bit dangerous. In a sentence, why do you enjoy working at your company? We've been growing like crazy and I've learned quite a lot. Not respecting limits has been one of those lessons. In a sentence, how does your company have fun on a regular basis? Waffle Wednesdays, food truck events, baseball games and company outings to the zoo are all events we've had in the past few months. In a sentence, how would you describe the employees at your company? Everyone is pretty relaxed and they're always willing to help out if you have questions.

When most people think of Nike, they think of shoes, retail stores, and, of course, athletes. That's all true, but there's more. Behind Nike's walls, you'll find the doers and thinkers who design, create, and innovate every day. There are also data scientists who discover and leverage athlete insights to create the future of sport.

You might be surprised to learn about the impact you can have in Data & Analytics at Nike versus at a major tech giant. Nike employees get to work on a wide array of challenges, so if you're obsessed with math, science, computers, and/or data, and you love sport, these stories may inspire you to work at Nike.

Employee loyalty is something every company longs for. It's estimated employee turnover costs as much as 130-200% of an employee's salary. When a talented, knowledgeable, trained employee leaves, it's bad for business. And, when lots of them leave, it can be the kiss of death.

If you saw our first video, you might have heard about the interview situation one of our viewers, Remi submitted. He was in an interview and was asked the question: How many cows are there in Canada right now? - What a weird question but this is a technique that some hiring managers are using these days.

If you saw our first video, you might have heard about the awkward situation one of our viewers, Kevin submitted. He is a college student who's working a part time job to make ends meet. The manager/owner of the company has become a micro-manager who watches him work on camera and reads his company emails. A bit over the top wouldn't you say?
